I think they are great! A nice gift that's bound to go up in value. I'm guessing these are circa late 40's, early 50's?

It's interesting how Vargas captured one very important component of sexuality: the smile. These women also seem to have a sort of playful demeanor of the Seven Year Itch variety that seems to have disappeared between pornography and political correctness.

J thinks that the King of Diamonds looks a lot like Nicole Kidman.

I can't BELIEVE you haven't posted a pic of the lovely salt and pepper shakers I got for you. I'm crushed.

Brenda: I think they're 1940s -- aren't they great?

Doctor: I actually identify the most with one that isn't posted (a woman lazing around with a book, of course

Comfort Addict: I think that's part of their charm...

Mr. Anigans: thank you

Kosh: you know, I think he's right

tickgirl: I'm sorry -- will you EVER forgive me? btw, Maelyn keeps threatening to steal them away from me

where did I find the time?

in between all my fabulous Oscar-winning acting gigs, decorating my four mansions and dating a Chippendale dancer. I've really been quite busy...

I miss the days when sexy legs like these used to count for something. Now it's all the unmentionables and no one cares about a great pair of gams.
